According to representatives of the UGCC, plastic wreaths “have nothing to do with honoring the dead”.
The Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church appealed to the citizens with the request not to bring to the graves of plastic wreaths.
The corresponding video was published on the Youtube channel of the Bureau of the UGCC on environmental issues. It is reported that plastic wreaths have nothing to do with honoring the dead.
“The Church calls us to honor the dead without compromising the living and not to carry to the cemetery plastic flowers and wreaths, which pollute the environment with toxic substances also pose a danger to health and life of people. The only thing that will require the souls of the dead, is our personal prayer and the prayer of the Church”, – stated in the message.
Moreover, the environmentalists of the UGCC indicates that the combustion of such wreaths subsequently released hazardous substances that affect the formation of cancerous tumors.
